On August 25, 2020, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse shot three men, killing two, in self-defense during a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Now, the estate of Joseph Rosenbaum is suing Rittenhouse, Kenosha officials, local Sheriff’s departments, the City of Kenosha, the City of West Allis, and several counties for “compensatory and punitive damages” for the “wrongful death” of Rosenbaum.
During the Kenosha incident, Rosenbaum confronted and chased Rittenhouse, eventually throwing a sack of items at him. According to witness testimony, Rosenbaum reached for Rittenhouse’s gun. Rittenhouse then fired four times, killing Rosenbaum. Ultimately, Rosenbaum’s death set off a chain of events that led to another death and injury as Rittenhouse protected himself from a mob of protestors.
During Rittenhouse’s trial, Rosenbaum’s fiancee testified to his extensive mental health issues. It was also uncovered that Rosenbaum spent most of his adult life in prison for sexual contact with five preteen boys.
Rittenhouse was acquitted of all criminal charges in 2021 and has since moved to Texas.
“These lawsuits are making it harder and harder for me to move on with my life,” Rittenhouse told Texas Scorecard. “It is extremely difficult to go outside without fear of being harassed or assaulted because of the lies spread in these lawsuits. No one should have to continue to defend the fact that they acted in self defense.”
Wasn’t Rosenbaum let out of prison that morning so he could “parrticipate”?
So the kid that Rosenbaum raped in Tucson should sue his estate.
The video of Rosenbaum’s behavior prior to the shooting should provide ample evidence he was an unhinged threat.
When did the law change as to allow Criminals to SUE their Victims for damages as a result of their Criminal Acts??
Rosenbaum was one in the Army Wing of the ‘Rat Party and Rittenhouse is a firm believer in Personal Liberty and Responsibility.
Too bad Kyle doesn’t have a time machine…so he could go back and shoot the sob all over again.
ADL is behind this, IMO
I want lovers of criminals to suffer from their stupidity.
Honey, your boyfriend tried to kill people, and greatly hurt an innocent person.
To everyone in the country:
Tell me again how our system of pseudo justice is so good.
This is like the man falling through the house skylight onto the island kitchen counter and cutting himself on a blade and then suing the homeowner for the injury during his attempted robbery of the home.
Mr Rittenhouse went pew pew. Mr Molester got owies. Mr Molester’s family is sad. They want Mr Rittenhouse to be sad. Mr Rittenhouse is not sad; he has a girlfriend.
“When did the law change as to allow Criminals to SUE their Victims for damages as a result of their Criminal Acts??”
Many freepers seem to think that is a perfectly acceptable practice. And they just love to point to OJ Simpson as if that justifies the practice.
Rittenhouse should file his own civil suit against the family.
This is, IMO, double jeopardy.
Double jeopardy does not apply to civil cases.
At least one of his victims was only five.
Marinate your brain in that for a moment.
Was that the pedophile who grabbed Kyle’s weapon??
Kyle should sue them back but add a few more zeros.
I know the rules - my comment was, “it’s not right”.
